Ballad Of Davy Crockett
Recorded by Burl Ives
Written by Tom Blackburn and George Burns

G C G
Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
A7 D7
Greenest state in the Land of the Free
G C
Raised in the woods so he knew every tree
D7 G
He killed himself a bear when he was only three

C G
Davy Davy Crockett
D7 G
King of the wild frontier

C G
Off through the woods he went marching along
A7 D7
Making up yarns and a singing a song
G C
Itching for fighting always righting a wrong
D7 G
He was rangy as a bear and twice as strong

Repeat #2

C G
Fought single-handed through the Indian War
A7 D7
Till the tribes went west and peace was in store
G C
The rest of his life he took the stand
D7 G
That justice was due the redskin man

Repeat #2

C G
He went off to Congress and served a spell
A7 D7
Fixing up the government and laws as well
G C
Took over Washington so we heard tell
D7 G
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell

Repeat #2

C G
He heard of Houston and Austin and so
A7 D7
To the Texas plains he just had to go
G C
Where the land was free and there was room to grow
D7 G
And he fought and died at the Alamo

Repeat #2

C G
Davy's land is the biggest Davy's land is best
A7 D7
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
G C
He's ahead of us all meeting the test
D7 G
Following his legend into the West

Repeat #2
